extensional

Extensional properties, e.g. extensional equality, relate to the "black-box" behaviour of an object, i.e. how its output depends on its input. The opposite is intensional which concerns how the object is implemented.

Oil shale resources in extensional basins are the most abundant, followed by those in intra-plate, flexural and strike-slip basins.
Previous attempts to understand the link between the extensional properties of molten polymers and the characteristics of the corresponding end-products show that enhanced strain hardening and high strain-at-rupture in the melt provide better extensibility with more homogeneous morphology [4].
He [Kelley] taught them physico-mathematical methods of evaluation, including the use of the extensional techniques of thinking.
By mixing in the extensional mode the higher (3X) viscosity greatly increases the dispersive effect, breaking down the lesser component with three times the shear stress.

However, there is another type of viscosity called extensional or elongational viscosity.
La interpretacion estructural de informacion sismica 3D, y su integracion con datos de pozos perforados en la region central y sur (bloques "B" y "VIII") de la Cuenca de Maracaibo, permitio establecer relaciones entre la deformacion extensional y contractiva, a partir del reconocimiento de un conjunto de estructuras invertidas.
Extensional viscosity data (see figure 2 ) differentiate clearly between the two samples, lower values being observed for the sample with a narrower molecular weight distribution (Ziegler-Natta).
Corn meal with alkali-treated bran had the highest extensional viscosity, although the unmodified corn bran also increased the extensional viscosity to a greater degree than that of the control.
The number average molecular weight and the weight average molecular weight of the blends were calculated (equations (3) and (4)), along with the uniaxial extensional viscosity (Table 2).
The dominance of the flexural mode in the signals from the monopole source versus that from the dipole sources can be approximately quantified by calculating the ratio formed from the maximum amplitude of the flexural region of the signal divided by the maximum amplitude of the part of extensional signal present before the first arrival of the flexural mode.
